For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Lyrics for Song: These Are My People
Well We grew up Down by the railroad
Trapshooting BB's at old beer cans
Choakin' on the smoke from a lucky strike
somebody lifted off his old man
We were Football Flunkies
Southern Rock Junkies
Crankin' up the stereos
Singing Loud and Proud
to "Gimmie Three Steps" "Simple Man" and "Curtis Low"
We were big yuh know
Got some discount Knowledge at the Jr. Collage
Where we majored in beer and girls
It was all real funny '
til we ran out of money
and they threw us out into the world
Yeah the kids that thought they'd run this town
ain't a runnin' much of anything
just lovin' and laughin' and bustin' our asses
and we all call it all livin' the dream
These are my people
This is where I come from
Were givin' this life everything we got and then some
It ain't always pretty
But its real
It's the way we were made
Wouldn't have it any other way
These are my people
Well We take it all week
on the chin with a grin
'til we make it to a Friday night
And it's church league softball holler
about a bad call
preacher breaking up the fight
Then later on at the Green Light Tavern
Well everybody is gathered as friends
And the beers a pourin'
'til Monday Mornin'
and we start it all over again
These are my people
This is where I come from
Were givin' this life everything we got and then some
It ain't always pretty
but it's real
It's the way we were made
Wouldn't have it any other way
These Are My People
We fall Down and We get up
We walk proud and We talk tough
We got heart and We got nerve
Even If we are a bit disturbed
Woo Come on
Now I love this song. Not because of the words exactly. My life really isn't like that, BUT I like the part about being real. I am a real person and I don't mean it in the sense that I am alive, I mean it as - I don't put on airs, I'm just me. Good dancing song too.
Have fun,
Chatty






These are my people



This is where I come from



Were givin' this life everything we got and then some






It ain't always pretty



but it's real






Its the way we were made



Wouldn't have it any other way



Ah naw



These Are My People Yeah woo[



Aren't you just tired of fake people?






Chatty
